Walter-Logan 'Bill
Challenges Administration
rJHE ACTION of the House of Repre-
isentatives on Tuesday refusing to
adj'oun this session of Congress has finally
forced the Senate to consider the highly con-
troversial Walter-Logan bill, characterized by
the anti-New Deal press as a "slap at the Pres-
The bill, designed to subject the rules and
decisions of the Federal administrative agencies
to court review, passed the House by a vote of
279 to 97 last spring and it is conceded that
there is much sentiment for it in the Senate.
However, the President will undoubtedly veto
the bill and he has already been supported in
his opposition by the Supreme Court in its de-
cision on the Walsh-Healy case delivered April
29, in which it spoke out against "judicial super-
vision of administrative procedure" and upheld
the right of the executive and legislative branches
to set up any standards they see fit for govern-
ment spending.
Under the guise of reform the Walter-Logan
bill sets up an instrument to attempt an over-
throw of the whole body of administrative ruling
and procedure created since the establishment
of the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1887.
Qualified by a number of significant exceptions,
a political weapon, the bill is principally aimed
at such New Deal agencies as FHA, FCA, HOLC
and above all, the NLRB.
IT CREATES review machinery of so compli-
cated and intricate a nature that the bill
would easily enervate the work of any agency by
its constant overbearing restrictions. Admin-
istrative agencies were set up by Congress, it-
self, to deal with the various complex and par-
ticular problems of modern life, since that body
possessed neither the specialized knowledge nor
the necessary time for performing the tasks
themselvgs. This delegation of power is the
basis for carrying on democratic government
today, allowing for the competent and efficient
execution of policy vested in the legislature and
To subject this fundamental process of gov-
ernment- to review by the judicial branch, as
in essence the Walter-Logan bill proposes, is to
hog-tie democracy and aggravate its greatest
weakness, namely, the inability of effectively
realizing and executing the will of the people.
The task of the judicial branch of government
is to determine law, w'ile that of our adminis-
trative branch is to determine fact, which in our
complex industrial era can only be adequately
performed by a body of experts, well versed in
the problems they deal with.
The Supreme Court and numerous bar asso-
ciations throughout the nation have recognized
this concept of American government that allows
the judiciary to determine the law and reserves
the determination of fact and analysis to the
administrative branch. It is the principle that
allows. American government to furction. We
hope that the United States Senate will also
recognize this fundamental principle and make
unnecessary President Roosevelt's veto.

And The Symphony .. .


WASHINGTON-The diplomatic reports Pres-
ident Roosevelt now has on his desk all indicate
that the war has reached the most crucial point
in its variegated history, and that adroit, even
strong-arm diplomacy by the United States
might tip the balance to a British victory.
How this may be done is now the most vital
the democratizing America, the symphony is at
last being' turned over to its rightful owners,
the people. Classical phonograph records are
now available at low cost, symphony radio pro-
grams are becoming popular-and now at last
comes a step which clearly removes the sym-
phony from the dowager class. This, step is
Walt Disney's newest full-length production-
It is by no means the work of Disney alone-
but also the work of Leopold Stokowski with
the Philadelphia Symphony and music com-
mentator Deems Taylor, as well as thousands
of expert technicians.
Disney and his men have been working on
Fantasia for more than two years now and have
spent staggering sums on its production-but
that doesn't matter. What is important is that
the Symphony at last belongs to the people.
THE PRODUCTION starts with a brief intro-
duction by Deems Taylor, and the entire
two-and-a-half-hour performance is conducted
like any ordinary concert. But it is enhanced
by Disney's fairylike combinations of line and
The first selection on the program is Bach's
D minor Toccata and Fugue, then Tschaikow-
sky's Nutcracker Suite,, with a ballet on the
screen performed by flowers, fairies, fish, fall-
ing leaves and mushrooms. Mickey Mouse then
appears in the title role of Dukas' Sorcerer's
Apprentice. Dinosaurs pound their tremendous
bulk up and down in a primeval ooze to Igor
Stravinsky's discordant Rite of Spring. And on
it goes-Moussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain,
a scary thunder-and-lightning spook scene-
and Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony-all pic-
tured in an engrossing wedding of sight and
And what sound! The engineers have im-
proved upon the symphony orchestra! The mu-
sic comes not only from the screen, but from
everywhere-the front, the back, the roof of the
theatre-and on the screen it follows the charac-
ters around. The sound equipment for the pro-
duction is so expensive that only 12 theatres
will be able to show the picture at one time, the
film travelling the continent like a theatrical
road show.
SCIENTIFIC as well as artistic perfection has
been reached in Fantasia. Disney techni-
cians studied prehistoric animals for Rite of
Spring, astrological phenomena for Night on
Bald Mountain. In fact, the New York Academy
of Sciences asked for a private showing of the
Rite sequences because they thought its dino-
saurs better than all available fossils and taxi-
dermy in (ic world.

question before the White House and State De-
To understand the role which the United
States may or may not play in tipping this bal-
ance, one must look back on the history of this
The attempt to invade England last September
stands out like the Battle of the Marne, when
in 1914 the Germans came within a few miles
of taking Paris. Had they penetrated fifteen
miles further the outcome of the World War
would have been different.
But from that moment on, the World War
settled down to a long drawn-out siege, in which
the sticking powers of the German people were
pitted against the immense resources of the
Allies, and during which the German war ma-
chine lost its immediate advantage of advance
Twenty-six years later-in September, 1940-
the Battle of Britain seems to have been almost
identical. At one time the Germans actually
had barges loaded with men headed for British
ports. But the alertness of the Royal Air Force,
plus bad weather, drove them back.
The entire force of Hitler's mighty military
machine, after years of painstaking preparation,
was poised for this attack. Now that the attack
has failed, Hitler has had to settle down to a
waiting, harassing policy.
Such a policy easily can be disastrous. For
the key to Hitler's political success has been
his constant uncorking of victories for the
German people. Austria, Czechoslovakia, Nor-
way, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and France
all have been held tip as the glorious reward
for terrific sacrifice and suffering.
Terrific power and deep emotional intensity
best characterize Dostoyevski's "Crime and Pun-
ishment" which will be shown for the last time
at 8:30 tonight at the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
The screen version, in French, completely lives
up to the excellence of the famed novel upon
which it is based. The picture, moreover, has an
advantage in presenting the superb acting of
Pierre Blanchar as the student-murderer, Harry
Baur as the police inspector and Madeleine
Ozeray. Rarely on the screen or on the stage
is seen the sweeping, terrible intensity of emo-
tion that is portrayed in "Crime and Punish-
ment." From the time of the horrible murder,
through the writhings of the murderer, to the
inevitable, climactic confession, there is no emo-
tional letdown, either for the audience or in the

gem that must be seen by all who enjoy drama
